White House dismisses chief usher, 1st woman to hold post

Angella Reid, the first woman and second African-American to hold the position of White House chief usher, was sacked because she made no secret of the fact that she remains a Hillary supporter and she refused to pander to the president.

According to the Washington Post, the White House residence staff was informed when they showed up to work Friday that Angella Reid had been dismissed from her position. She was previously the general manager at the Ritz Carlton in Pentagon City, just outside Washington. Reid also handled fiscal and administrative duties in the White House. "We left on very good terms".

Reid is one in a short line of White House ushers - only nine people have held the title.

Officials at the White House have not released any details about Angella Reid's dismissal.

The chief usher is tasked with supervising all activities related to the White House residence. No one interviewed for the Post story could recall an abrupt firing from the White House permanent staff since 1993.

Still, he added, "The basic residence staff stays there for a long time".

Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University, hypothesized that Reid was sacked over Trump's paranoia.

Reid, who had 25 years experience in hotel management, happened upon the position at a pool party.

Reid was the first woman and second African American to hold the position, hired under President Barack Obama in October 2011.

"The Trump administration seems anxious about Obama's spies, and there may have been a feeling that she wasn't on page with the Trumpians", presidential historian Douglas Brinkley told the Post.
